Grain Commentary

  • Wheat: Steady ($455 to $465/tonne). Barley: Steady ($395 to $405/tonne). Maize: Steady ($465 to $475/tonne). Canola Meal: Steady ($475 to $485/tonne).
  • In most southern grain areas, cool and wet weather have all delayed harvest.
  • In wheat markets a lack of selling activity from both growers and traders has kept prices firm.
  • Once harvest and selling activity ramps up, it is expected that there will be competition among export buyers as well as domestic food and feed buyers.
  • Competition at a number of sites has seen barley prices also remain firm, with some buyers who were buying on a hand to mouth basis having been caught out by recent harvest delays.

Notes:

Change in price is the change since the last report. Prices are estimates based on delivery to dairy farms with allowance for freight, storage, and marketing costs, but exclusive of GST. Wheat prices are for the relevant stockfeed wheat available in a region (ASW, AGP, SFW1 or FED1) and F1 for barley.

This report has been commissioned by Dairy Australia to provide an independent and timely assessment of grain and hay markets in each dairying region. It should be remembered that actual prices may vary for quality or other reasons.
